The brand-new Rocket Phonics SSP is based on the familiar, original Letters and Sounds progression and phasing but builds in best practise to ensure teaching in class reflects the fidelity to the programme required by Ofsted so that all children make the progress they need. The validated SSP is designed for whole-class teaching with the flexibility to allow for small groups and follows a slower-paced, more rigorous approach than existing phonics programmes as it covers two letter sounds per week.
